I feel so shitty like oh my god. In class today we were discussing a point in time circa 1900 when hundreds of jews emigrated from russia to other european countries and I said ” The word jewish is a weird word. Like if you stop and think about it. Like the suffix ish is usually used to say that something is similar to something else, or bears a resemblance like are you hungry? I’m hungry-ish…. and so when you say someone is jewish it’s basically saying that the person in question is not a jew but exhibits traits similar to a jew.” At which point i was called a racist and a xenophobic prick by other students but I dont think what I said is that bad though? and now I think all of my classmates hate me and I feel like total trash
today in school we read a poem about america as a cohesive whole and one of the lines was about absentee fathers and being raised by a single mom and one of the girls in class started angrily berating the poet because of his disrespect of females and that his poem supported the stereotype of the stay at home mother and I ws just like “yeah but his poem is about our society, and in our society you do see that an awful lot” and she was like “only because men like this poet keep the illusion of male superiority strong” and I was just like jesus. It’s a poem.
